Palmares Description

The 27 hole Palmares Golf Course is located near Lagos in the Algarve. This course has been totally transformed by the American course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. He has created a mixture of parkland with authentic Links style. The 27 holes are laid out on the side of a south-facing hill overlooking the Bay of Lagos. It is questionably the most attractive location of all the golf courses in the Algarve. The views as you play your round are often quite breathtaking.

On the Palmares Course there are three 9 hole circuits the Alvor Course, the Lagos Course, and the Praia Course. The first nine holes run through woodland and the down to the beach with lovely views of the Alvor Estuary and the ocean. The Lagos nine take the player down to the beach and again with superb view. The last nine holes are mainly located on the actual beach among the sand dunes with a par 5 of 550 metres creating a good challenge.

Palmares Lagos &Praia

Lagos & Praia- great courses in fabulous condition. Pace of play was a little slow but the views are worth it!
Alvor & Lagos

Played Alvor and Lagos 18 having played all three nines last year. Beautiful views from almost every hole. The courses were well prepared and running like an English summer!! The club house and toilets are tired and could definitely do with an upgrade. The Pro Shop staff are extremely helpful if the barman is a tad grumpy. All three courses are great to play and we will definitely return next year.
Stunning 27 holes but needing water and TLC

Very dry. Course a little on the wild side, felt like it needed a bit of TLC. Enjoyable due stunning scenery. Course in need of a bit of quite a bit of water. True greens. Bunkers lacking sand and scruffy. Take a buggy.

Played Alvor & Lagos 9's. The fairways weren't in great shape but the greens were really good. The Alvor 9 only had 3 memorable holes compared to the quality of the holes on the Lagos course. Some issues tho, the pace of play was a disgrace & there was no ranger to speed things up. A group ahead of us were waiting for their 2nd group to play certain holes & were waiting on the back of the greens rather than carrying on playing the next hole right away. JOKE! The 2nd was the price, almost €130 plus €40 for a buggy. Very poor value. Also we couldnt even get a sandwich when we returned to the clubhouse afterwards. The place seemed poorly kept compared to all the other resorts in the Algarve that I've played.
